It really depends on the temperature when you get married. I was in a wedding in August of last year and they put real flowers in our hair. After an hour they wilted because it was so dang hot! I would go with fake personally. Check out Etsy! They have tons of cute things and if you don’t find what you are looking for, you can always request something to be made.

I got mine from Butterly Enchantress Designs. You can google their site. They also have an Etsy store.

Yeah, I would have to imagine they would wilt pretty quickly. I guess you could get spares and just keep replacing them every 30-45 minutes!

I would go with fake as well. There are some that LOOK real, but they aren’t as fragile and sensitive to heat, or people hugging you and smooshing the flower.

It sounds more like the florist does not want to go to the work of making a hair flower. There are tons of flowers used for hair decoration that will not wilt and nearly every flower comes in ivory. If the florist is not willing to do something, put your foot down, and if that does not work, find someone else asap who actually does want your business.

Just stay away from fragile flowers such as gardenias, etc. Roses and orchids are hardy and are frequently used for hair flowers. Hair oils, etc have no effect on a flower staying vibrant or wilting. The climate (extreme hot or cold) and constant touching are what will make a flower wilt faster than normal.
